-Duplicated background layer
-in the Channels pallet i did a slit blur on the green and blue channels.
-used adjustment layer with levels. I picked the darkest shadow (hair under ears) with the dropper and the girls teeth as the brightest for the whites dropper.
then I used the brush tool on the adjustment layer to brush back in the candle.
- used adjustment layer with select color and darkened the blacks.
- added a layer on top with a layer filled with RGB 217,144,3 in color blend mode at 20% opacity, to warm it up.
